Utah forecast: Here comes rain, snow and clean air 28.1.2014 Salt Lake Tribune
Smog-plagued northern Utah finally is getting a break in the form of an extended rain- and snow-laden storm system. The National Weather Service placed a stretch of the Wasatch Front from Logan running south through Ogden, Salt Lake City and Provo to Nephi, Price and Green River under a Winter Storm Watch. The advisory ran from Tuesday evening through Friday evening. Valley locations will mostly see light winds and rainfall, but the mountains were expected to receive 16 to 24 inches of new snow,...

UDOT: Gusty winds will make travel a challenge 23.1.2014 Salt Lake Tribune
Windy weather expected to blow through the region prompted the Utah Department of Transportation to issue travelers’ advisories for Thursday through Friday afternoon. Strong crosswinds, some gusting past 50 mph, will affect north-to-south roads along the east benches and at the mouths of canyons in Davis and Weber counties from 4 a.m. Thursday through 5 p.m. Friday. On Interstate 15, those same stiff winds will buffet drivers between Layton and Woods Cross from 5 a.m. through 1 p.m. Thursday, UD...

Steamboat girls hoops scrap their way to first home win 14.12.2013 Steamboat Pilot
In the Steamboat Springs High School girls basketball’s loss to Green River in the opening round of the Steamboat Shoot-Out, Sailors coach Mack Spitellie called his team “the queens of standing around.” In 24 hours, Steamboat turned into the queens of comeback. On a night where offense was at a premium for both squads, the Sailors overcame a six-point, fourth-quarter deficit to steal their first home win of the 2013-14 season, beating Discovery Canyon, 30-27. Playing on an injured leg late in the game, senior Mikaila Jegtvig closed out Discovery Canyon from the free-throw line, nailing a pair of shots in the game’s waning moments. And rebounding from an ice-cold shooting night on Thursday, senior Maggie Crouch led all Sailors with nine points. “We just really didn’t want to lose again,” Crouch said. “We were pissed about last night, and we just weren’t going to lose.” Steamboat and Discovery Canyon were deadlocked at only four points apiece after one quarter, and the Sailors held a ...

4th-quarter comeback not enough for Sailors girls basketball 13.12.2013 Steamboat Pilot
Turnovers, chaotic transition defense and ice-cold shooting dug Steamboat Springs High School girls basketball into a deep hole in its home-opener Thursday night, but that didn’t stop the Sailors from mounting a furious comeback. Down by as much as 18 in the second half — and down 13 in the fourth quarter — Steamboat finally woke up and played the style of game that got it off to a 3-0 season start. Back-to-back 3-pointers by senior Mikaila Jegtvig pulled the Sailors to within three points at 36-33 with less than five minutes remaining in the game. Senior Maggie Crouch kept it close with a nifty post-move bucket to bring the score to 43-40 inside of a minute. But in the waning moments, the little things that ravaged the Sailors (3-1) in a big way in the first half proved to be the difference in the outcome of Steamboat’s 44-42 loss to Green River (Wyo.) Thursday night in the first round of the Steamboat Springs Shoot-Out. It was the Sailors’ first loss of the season. “We just have to play ...

See head-butting rams at Utah’s Bighorn Sheep viewing day 3.12.2013 Salt Lake Tribune
Few moments in the wildlife world are more violent than the annual mating season of bighorn sheep; at least the events that don’t end in a death. It isn’t the mating that causes people to cringe, but dominance determination by the rams. Utah Division of Wildlife Resources (DWR) officials can’t guarantee that participants will see bighorn sheep ramming heads, but it is possible during the annual free Bighorn Sheep Watch on Saturday along the Green River, north of the town of Green River. “Bighorn...

Editorial: Water rulings show Utah not worthy of making its own choices 2.12.2013 Salt Lake Tribune
Anybody who thinks it would be a good idea for the state of Utah to be able to make its own land use, water use and environmental decisions, without meddlesome federal bureaucrats getting involved, should be working to demonstrate that the decisions that would be made here would be at least as wise and measured as anything that would come from a Washington functionary. By that measure, Utah’s case for independence took a huge step backward the other day when a state judge could find no fault wi...

How threatened is Uinta Basin’s rare desert flower? 1.12.2013 Salt Lake Tribune
Graham’s and White River beardtongue are rare desert flowers that grow almost exclusively in Uintah County’s badlands. But these plants, also known as penstemon, sink their roots into Green River Formation shales, putting their conservation on a collision course with a vast yet untapped hydrocarbon resource. For reasons that are not well understood, these beardtongue species appear only near Utah’s oil shale outcrops, known as the Mahogany Ledge, federal officials say. These are the very places...

Utah green groups sue over oil drilling 28.11.2013 Salt Lake Tribune
Utah environmental groups have asked a federal court to halt drilling in six oil wells near the Green River. In a lawsuit filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court, the Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance (SUWA) and The Wilderness Society challenged the BLM’s decision to permit Denver-based Gasco Production Co. to drill wells in the Pariette Draw region in Uintah County. The environmental groups already are challenging a project by Gasco to develop nearly 1,300 wells around the same area. The BLM app...

Utah judge backs state engineer: Nuke plant can have water 28.11.2013 Salt Lake Tribune
A 7th District judge Wednesday gave promoters of a nuclear power plant near Green River something to be thankful for: a win in lawsuit brought by environmentalists. Judge George Harmond ruled that Utah State Engineer Kent Jones was right to allow Blue Castle Holding to acquire 53,000-acre feet of Green River water for its proposed nuclear plant. “Great!” said Aaron Tilton, the former Utah state lawmaker who is president of the Provo-based company. Tilton was not surprised, he said, becaus...

Green River looks at trail system to draw visitors 27.11.2013 Salt Lake Tribune
Aside from its famous watermelons, the world-class cheeseburgers at Ray’s Tavern and the John Wesley Powell River History Museum, the city of Green River is largely considered a pit stop on the way to other Utah adventures. A new system of up to 50 miles of hiking, biking and boating trails being planned in and around the Emery County town might give would-be re-fuelers a reason to stick around. “The idea for trails around town, particularly to Crystal Geyser, have been around for a long time,...

Green River • To those who have taken the time to explore Utah’s rivers, standing on the patio of the John Wesley Powell River History Museum and staring at the muddy waters of the Green River below brings back many feelings and emotions.

Utah forecast: Autumn takes a cold, snowy turn 4.11.2013 Salt Lake Tribune
Joni Mitchell could have foreseen Utah’s chilly forecast as this week begins, one where “the frost perched on the town [and] the sun turns traitor cold.” The National Weather Service, in less dulcet tones, put it differently, issuing a Winter Weather Advisory for swaths of the state stretching from the western Uinta Mountains and Wasatch Plateau into the central and southern mountains. From Park City west to Vernal and south and west through Price, Delta, Escalante, Cedar City and St. George, fo...

Utah forecast: Nothing spooky for this Halloween forecast 31.10.2013 Salt Lake Tribune
At least, there was nothing spooky about Utah’s Halloween forecast, or for that matter the day after young candy-seekers haunted the streets costumed as witches, ghosts and misbehaving celebrities. The National Weather Service predicted highs in the mid- to upper-50s Thursday and Friday along the Wasatch Front, with overnight lows in the upper 30s under partly cloudy skies. Southern Utahns expected highs in the 60s to low-70s, overnight lows in the upper-30s to low-40s and clear horizons. Howeve...

Obama’s new marketplaces falter, but Utahns have pathways to help 31.10.2013 Salt Lake Tribune
Add this to holiday wish-lists of hundreds of thousands of uninsured Utahns: health coverage. The Obama administration has hired a private firm to patch its problem-plagued insurance shopping portal www.healthcare.gov and says repairs could take through the end of November. That leaves consumers two weeks, or until Dec. 15, to secure a plan that kicks in on January 1. Federal officials, however, are delaying enforcement of the Affordable Care Act’s Jan. 1 insurance requirement by six weeks. Peo...
